Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and generous community, the Holly Springs Food Cupboard remains open.
As the Holly Springs Food Cupboard continues to serve an increased number of clients, we remain very thankful for the generous support we receive from our community. We also are humbled by the dedication of our volunteers who are devoted to serving others and faithful in their service.
In June, the Cupboard served 178 families. Volunteers delivered food to 65 of those families. We also distributed 109 track out bags for families with students who are without access to school meals. Thank you so much to all our volunteers and a special shout out to the volunteers who make food deliveries, ensuring clients who are seniors, who are without transportation, or who have health concerns receive assistance during this pandemic.
Our clients are grateful, also, for our volunteers and for your support. Below is a letter we received from one of our many thankful clients, expressing gratitude for not just the food and delivery, but also for the warm conversations and love shared.
Dear members or staff persons of Holly Springs Food Bank,
This is a note addressed to every one of you, one by one. I want to thank you from the depth of my heart for all the time, energy, gas, the warm welcoming smiles, the conversations… just only the love of Jesus have I experienced from each of you! Thank you for using your cars and gas to deliver the food faithfully! I cannot thank you enough! May God give you, each of you, the deepest desires of your hearts.
Love in Christ,
A grateful client
Thank You, Garden Volunteers!
Garden volunteers: Thanks for all your hard work at the Food Cupboard gardens! During one week alone at the end of June, we harvested 92 lbs of vegetables, herbs, and fruit for clients! The harvest included tomatoes, zucchini, basil, blueberries, yellow squash, collards, peppers, turnips, carrots, beets, cucumbers, chard, beet greens, and kale.

Please visit us. These are unprecedented circumstances, and we are here to help. Drive-through food distribution is every Thursday, 2-5 p.m. Deliveries are available to senior citizens and persons with compromised health or without transportation. Click here for more information.
Thank you! The Food Cupboard is able to receive food on Mondays, 9-11 a.m. (this is our preferred time) and Thursdays, noon-5 p.m. Place donations on our delivery dock on the side of our facility and knock to allow for safe distancing. Or, give us a call and we can meet you to pick up food from your neighborhood.
Most needed items:
